well u can make use of logon scripts to change the ip at logon time for each profile
that would be the best approach and using a single ethernet card only
that is as far as i know

You can use 3 network cards if you really want or specify logon script changes as webtrans mentioned.

A website such as http://www.petri.co.il/configure_tcp_ip_from_cmd.htm may help

but this will require a high privileges level, but if I may ask, why do you need such solution ?

Jgalatis,

If you are doing this to enforce security rules, it is not a particularly good idea to enforce security by IP address.

A better way to get these features is to use the VPN features to sign onto different networks through a VPN gateway. That way, access is only allowed to the assets intended.

I hope that the above is helpful.

If you need different network security depending on who the user is, the "right" solution is 802.1X which is designed to do exactly that.  There are some proprietary solutions, mostly advertised as providing security for wireless networks, such as BlueSocket, that basically provide an intercept (HTTP/Telnet) so users have to log on, and a rulebase that governs what a given authenticated user can do.

You can use a script on the logon server to assign the ip address you want. The command you can use is:

netsh int ip set add local static ip.ip.ip.ip sub.sub.sub.sub gat.gat.gat.gat

If you don't have a server, you can add a shortcut to the startup folder of each profile...

example: netsh int ip set add local static 10.0.0.25 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.1

This will change the ip address of the machine to 10.0.0.25 with subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 10.0.0.1

I don't know is it a best solution because what you wrote require very high permissions on the system (ie administrator) try to run this script as a normal user.
And i don't think that this was the point of that question gave enybody on the system admnistrative rights and allow the script to change the ip.
I dissagre that your answer was most relevant. IMHO the best solution was given by PennGwyn and either his solution should get the points or the question should be deleted no points refund

I don't agree with marcin79 because PennGwyn talks about an 802.1X solution that was not asked for. On the other hand, jgalatis didn't mentioned anything about client security... So, i think my answer gives the besy solution to the above question
